Donations to St Margaret's Church

There is now a way to donate to St Margaret's Church using "Donate Now" set up by the Diocese of Lichfield to help their churches.  Their Finance Team, with help from a local software company, Date Developments, have put a Donate Now button on the Diocese website.

As we have not been able to fix the broken link from this page, there is a "Donate Now" button on our "Help our Church" page which is working if you wish to make a donation.

In addition, there is a Gift Aid option as well as an option for donors to cover the transaction cost if they want to.  As is the case with Contactless and Giving Direct, funds go into the Diocesan bank account as the registered charity and are then passed on to St Margaret’s as soon as possible along with a report showing when the donations were made. 

Many Thanks
